Chelsea tried to hire Guardiola six times

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was said to have tried to sign Pep Guardiola six times in the last decade but only to be rejected by the Spaniard boss every single time.

The Russian Billionaire was said to be a huge admirer of Guardiola following his dream stint at Barcelona, where he won a plethora of titles, including a sextuple.

Perhaps, the Londoners have had several managerial changes, say 14, since Abramovich took over. Thomas Tuchel has been performing well as Blues boss, recently helping his side to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League.
